Also Called

  • Death Glare/Stare/Vision
  • Killing Glare/Stare/Vision
  • Ocular/Optic Death Inducement


The user can kill anyone/anything via looking at someone and/or by having target look at the user the target.




  • The sight impaired are highly resistant and those without sight (blindness) are immune.
  • May require eye contact to work.
  • In some cases, if user's killing eyes are reflected back them (such as a mirror), it can kill the user, if not immune to the effects.
  • If the eyes are seen through a reflection of some sort, then the gaze might only be anywhere from simply knocking the person out to Petrification.
  • If one cannot control the power's use, visual contact must be avoided with most people, to avoid killing them involuntarily.
  • Can't kill Immortal beings, or targets that aren't technically "alive" (e.g. Artificial Life-Forms, Spirits, or the Undead). Other side-effects, such as Petrification, may still occur.
  • Can be reversed by Resurrection.
